Nick Fleury, Alex Rus, Brian D'Amore, Hugh Whelan

Boston, MA --- WPI Men's Track & Field's 4x100 has been tabbed as the NEWMAC Relay Team of the Week.

Freshman Nick Fleury (Hopkinton, NH), freshman Alex Rus (Newton, MA), senior Brian D'Amore (Medfield, MA), and senior Hugh Whelan (Madison, CT) collaborated to clock the quickest 4x100-meter relay time within the conference so far this season at the Amherst Spring Fling. Their 43.17 is also fifth on the Division III New England performance list.

The quartet also accounted for six solo point-producing, and DIII New England qualifying, efforts. Fleury (11.07) won the individual version of the event, followed by D'Amore (11.16) in second and Whelan (11.23) in fourth. Rus (22.36) and D'Amore (22.82) were second, and fourth in the 200-meter dash while Rus (50.78) was the runner up in the 400-meter dash.

A majority of the team heads to Coast Guard Friday night for a tri-meet that includes Springfield. Select student-athletes will be around the corner from the base for the Conn College Elite Distance or two-day Multi-Event Meet.
